■y E, THE EDITORS, present this volume to the faculty, studends and friends of the Elwood High School, not so much with the regret that it is no better, as with a feeling of satisfaction that we have made it what it is.
We do not claim to have compiled a classic; this book is simply an effort of the Senior B’s of ’06 to show, if possible, some phases of High School life. As for our jokes, The Gentle Reader will find no microscope powerful enough to reveal malice in them. This is not an annual composed by members from every class in High
School, but an attempt of just one class. So we earnestly beg that our readers will not expect as much from us as they would from a whole High School. However, we do trust that they will find in the publication of this book some merit, at least in our endeavor to set a much-needed example for underclassmen to imitate.
If we have succeeded in making this book a pleasant reminder of High School days to the departing Seniors, and also if it shall prove the first of an infinite series of Elwood High School annuals and semi-annuals, then our hopes will be realized.

The Elwood High School was commissioned in 1892, but high-school work had been done by various students for twenty years previous to that date. There were but twenty-five or twenty-six students at the time f commission, five being in the senior class, nine in the junior, and eleven or twelve in the freshman. The building which was used for high school purposes at that time, was located on the site of the present building and contained but four rooms. Mr. T. F. Fitz-gibbon was sole teacher and principal, besides being the superintendent of the public schools, for several years before the commission was granted. That year, Mr. Chas. Meek was appointed principal, thus relieving Mr. Fitzgibbon, who, however, still retained his position as teacher. Finding that another instructor was necessary, Mr. Pierce was added to the faculty in 1893.
The course, as mapped out in 1892, included english and general history, latin, physical geography, rhetoric, algebra, geometry, science of discourse, botany and physics. There were but
three years of high-school until 1900, when the course was changed to four, years, as it is at the present time, "there were no graduating classes that year.
in June, 1893, the high-school was moved to the present Linwood building, where it remained until 1898, when the central building was completed. In it were provided handsome and commodious rooms for the use of the high-school students, which are occupied at the present time by them, and which bid fair to serve for many years to come.
There have been sixteen graduating classes and a total of one hundred eighty-three graduates. Of this number, six are dead and over one-half are manned. The first graduating class was composed of five members: Jennie Cox, Stella Hunter, Cora Boyden, Lulu Groff and Frank Snively. Miss Cox and Miss Hunter have since married. Miss Boyden has been a teacher in the city schools for several years. Miss Groff’s present whereabouts and occupation are unknown, and Mr. Snively is doing journalistic work in New York City.iijistnrii of tlhuuiit ifituli riiiuil (Duutiuurh.
Six principals have had charge of the high school since its commission. In this number are Mr. Chas. Meek, the present superintendent of the city schools; Mr. Daniel Freeman; S. D. Owen; Mr. J. G. Collicut, who is now principal of the high school at Evansville, Ind.; and Mr. Everett Owen, who has held the position for two years and will, we hope, hold it many more.
It ‘would be hard to find a greater variety of occupations anywhere than have been followed by the different graduates of E. H. S. Without a single exception they have been successful in their chosen vocations. Among the many a few are recalled. The present principal and the city attorney are perhaps the most familiar. Many of the city teachers, the deputy county treasurer, Mr. Luce; Mr. Starkey, a prominent physician of Alabama; Mr. Sniveiy of New York, who has made a signal success' in newspaper circles; Chase Gillespie, our popular polo referee; Ora House, a noted electrician in Minnesota; Clarence Hunter, a prosperous merchant; and a number who are still students at the different col-
leges are others.
"An alumni association was organized in ’93, which held until June, ’98, when it was dropped through lack of interest. It was reorganized in January, 1904, and is now a thriving organization with very bright prospects. Mr. Meek is named as the only honorary member, since he has bean so long and favorably connected with the high school.
At the present time, the high school has two hundred three members, with a corps of eight teachers besides the music, writing and athletic instructors. Since the begining of the high school, German, book-keeping, music, and a course in ancient and mediaeval and United States history have been added to the list of subjects taught; and science of discourse and physical geography have been dropped. Many improved methods have been adopted and the high school of today is as up-to-date and progressive as many high schools in towns twice the size of Elwood. Its friends are many and there is not one of them but would join with us in wishing E. FI. S. a prosperous future.At h Ultra
Physical exercise is a direct stimulant to mental culture, for with increased health and strength comes increased intellectual powers.
With this result in view the athletic work was begun in the Elwood high school which is, however, a new department in the routine of work.
Previous to the autumn of 1903, foot ball and basket ball had been the only athletic sports indulged in by the students of the high school and, moreover, these games furnished exercise for only a very limited number of persons. But late in 1903 an interest in gymnasium work was started among the students of the high school, which has since grown rapidly and become well established. The success of the gymnasium work is especially due to the active interest which all the teachers have taken in it. The beneficial effects resulting from this gymnasium work, whit h was the more especially necessary since there is no space afforded the students for out-door exercise, near the building, are soon very apparent to
those who participate in the exercises.
The gymnasium classes are now well organized and the exercise which is considered as regular school work and conducted as such, is given by thoroughly competent teachers in both morning and evening classes. This athletic work has, through the field days and spring entertainments, now substituted for the former class plays usually given at the close of the spring term, enabled the high school to place itself much higher in the estimation of the general public.
Near the close of the foot ball season in 1903, Mr. Owen, now high school principal, announced that a gymnasium class was to be organized and a room in the building equipped for the work. The apparatus necessary at first was paid for by teachers and students and later by monthly taxes paid by members of the classes. As yet only the boys were permitted to take part in the exercise's and they were divided into two classesof about twenty members each. As the classes were not yet well organized and the work somewhat monotonous, the students did not take a very marked interest at first, but, nevertheless, that interest was destined to grow until now there is not a student in the high school who does not feel a certain pride in the gymnasium.
The second year (1904-5) brought a wonderful development in the gymnasium. With the returns from a musical and athletic entertainment and field day, both held in May, 1904, the gymnasium was placed upon a firm basis and much new apparatus added to its equipment. It now contains among other material the wooden horse, parallel bars, horizontal bars, mats, Indian clubs, dumb bells, horizontal ladders, and besides these for outdoor field work are the vaulting pole, shot, hammer, discus, etc. The most valuable addition to the gymnasium at the present year consists of the apparatus for physical examination. By this means can be determined the exercise which the student most needs, and in this way he may secure the greatest possible benefits from the gymnasium exercises.
With the beginning of this same year a girls’
class was organized as well as the two classes for boys. At present the girls’ class has an enrollment of twenty-five members while that of the boys has an enrollment of about fifty members. The teachers for the present year are: Mr. Herbert Niece, the instructor for the boys’ class, and Miss Ola E. Sheets for that of the girls’.
A special class of the boys has been organized in both 1904 and 1905 for taking part in the Spring Entertainments. In 1905 a special class of the girls was formed by Miss Sheets for the same purpose. Both classes became very efficient and were especially so in their drills.
These have been thus far one of the most successful undertakings in which the teachers and students of the High School have engaged. They have consisted of drills and gymnasium exercises by both the boys’ and the girls’ special classes, music by the High School Orchestra and High School Choruses, besides many minor parts by students.
Since the beginning of the present school year 1905-6 an Athletic Association has been formed for further er.couraging athletics, and especiallyfootball and base ball. The rules and regulations of the association will be similar to those of the j State Athletic Association. The officers of the association are as follows: President, Joe
Stretcher, of the Sophomore class; vice president, Clarence Armfield, of the Junior class; and secretary, Walter Holland, of the Freshman class. The students named, together with four teach-
ers: Mr. Everet W. Owen, Mr. Elmer E. Petty, Mr. John S. Bordner and Miss Helen L. Brown, form an executive committee for attending to all business of the association.
It is to be hoped that this, with many other influences, will aid the athletic work in ever retaining its present elevating influence to the same ultimate result, the advancement of our school.

We, as the B class ’06, made our first appearance in society at tire home of Miss, Eva Hocker. Her beautiful residence on North Anderson Street was handsomely , decorated in the class colors.and class flowers. Despite the heavy rains that flavored the evening, most all of the class were present and a most excellent time was enjoyed by all.
Games; ancj music were freely indulged in. Dainty refreshments were charmingly served by the young hostess, and all departed at a late hour, with many thanks for the pleasant evening which we had enjoyed.
; In the spring of 1904 we completed our sophomore year. As school work had not been interrupted this year by any sort of- a class society event) a short pleasure trip was planned.1 So onesfme: evening .during the last.-week of. school; we (Killed the “Duke” into serMice .and the merri-bersGof hur: class set-out ftihg gay;drive.' Am of Our destination proved to.be! the country
of our class-mate, Carl Allen. We were given a hearty welcome -upon our arrival, and we immediately proceeded to have a merry time.
As the ever agreeable moon came out so bright, we took advantage of the light and possession of the large.smooth barn lot, by playing all sorts of out-of-door games, such as, “dare-base,” ‘‘drop the handkerchief” and “three deep.” In these games fast running was necessary, and of course Cloy Achenbach and Edna Miller invariably came out winners.
In a little while a call .to the dining room was most cheerfully welcomed by us and-we quickly showed our appreciation of the good; things ;set before us by our ravishing .appetites.: m :;A
After we had all been served to refreshments; wie proceeded to have a little song sei-vice. Many solos were sung and loudly applauded. Then choruses became pojiulaiv and in this way mulch hidden talent was, revealed, which had hitherto beenlsecretly•'bound.up im-varieds modest and timidi:tlassmate !uoo grixnoa fo Jnocma or: binsHowever, we finally ended our fun and started home. A very sleepy but happy crowd of High School students pulled into El wood late that night.
“Ever so many thanks,” cannot fully express our appreciation for the royal hospitality which we received that evening.
Our Junior year is well remembered by the splendid entertainment which we enjoyed at the home of Miss Kathryne McBride, May 6, 1905. About forty guests were present besides the teachers that attended.
Upon our arrival at her beautiful home, Miss Kathryne kindly welcomed us, and the sound of music and perfume of wildwood violets pleasantly greeted us.
An auction sale was the most amusing and unique pastime of the evening. Miss Smith and Miss Lonn invested all their valuables for the possession of a pastry set and an egg beater, which they both declared they might need some future day. Mr. Haseman got reckless and squandered all his money on a small package, and no amount of coaxing could induce him to
display his purchase to the other guests. In the guessing contest there was a tie between Mr. Bordner and Miss Edna Miller, but of course Mr. Bordner gallantly allowed Edna to carry off the prize. Mr. Wright favored us with several piano solos, all of which were greatly enjoyed.
Dainty refreshments were served in our class colors. In this part of the programme Mr. Bordner took more than active part.
Thus the evening sped on wings and late night was upon us before the first of us had bidden Miss Kathryne good-night, with many inefficient thanks for our much enjoyed evening.
A few weeks later Mr. and Mrs. Fesler invited our class to spend an evening with them at their country home. Again the “Duke” was called into service. This time it was filled to its fullest capacity, but what cared we? The worth of that old adage, “The more the merrier,” was well realized by us. Our journey out to our host’s was merry and with one exception no accident occurred. This exception, however, served to make the party jollier, as it was a joke on Miss Bonnie Worley, who was “spilt” out of thewagon as it jolted over a rut in the road. But true to her motto, “never be left behind,” she scrambled to her feet and ran with might and main until she reached the wagon, and was aided in by Everett, “the gallant.”
We arrived about 8:30 safe and sound, and were soon made to feel at home by Mr. and Mrs. Fesler’s kindness.
Again the barn-lot afforded us room for our old games, in vigorous running. Some musical selections interrupted this pastime, and among the most appreciated was a song rendered by Mrs. Fesler.
A delicious and elegant lunch was then placed at our disposal. The male members soon showed their ever-devouring appetites, and quickly ate all that was before them, and in some cases they broke the bonds of etiquette so much as to help themselves to their fair neighbor’s store.
The clock struck twelve and we were yet in the midst of our merry-making. However, we knew that Juniors should start home by twelve at the latest, so bidding Mr. and Mrs. Fesler good-night and thanking them for such a delightful time, we filled the “Duke” again and started home. As we were then only Juniors we may be excused for rude manners of awakening all wayside homes by our unearthly and undignified yells.
Now that we are ready Seniors we intend to hold a series of pleasant socials. The first of the series was held October 20 at the home of our popular classmate, George Fesler. A regular old-fashioned feast was indulged in. All sorts of substantials and delicacies were served. In truth, George proved a most excellent and pleasant host. The next event is looked forward to with delightful expectancy.MOTTO Gradatira iFmtr M (Hlaas ’flfi. YELL Waukeshaw, Kazoo, Kazan! Hipety, Hipety, Hix! Boomerang, Ch-wang, Ch-bang!

GLADYS VERNA MOORE became a bright and shining light on this world in Hamilton County, Indiana; but when and what for, scientists have been unable to determine. She spent the first three years of her school life attending the district school near her home. Then, like the wise girl that she is, she entered the schools at Elwood, where she continues to attend. Besides being one of the brightest heads in her class, she has a very charming disposition which has won her a host of friends.
flTEORGE FESLER, one of the most popular members of the ’06 class, entered the Elwood High School at the tender age of fourteen. During all the long years of his pursuit for knowledge George was never known to be absent or tardy. He is especially brilliant in history, having once written a history of his class. As a reward tor his perfectness, he is always pointed out as a model to less perfect students.
rfjttATlLDA FLORA ROTH began her career in the beautiful little city of Tipton. Tipton county, Indiana; in the same year that so many other bright and shining lights were ushered into ti.is hard old world. Her first five years of obtaining wisdom were spent in the Tipton schools. But with her characteristic foresight she saw the advantage of the Elwood schools, and so migrated thither. Now, after seven years of heroic school work, she is about to graduate from the E. H. S. with the mighty class of nineteen six.
TflOY SYLVESTER SIZELOVE was introduced ® into this world at Point Isabel, Grant County, Indiana. The first two years of his battle for knov ledge were spent in the public schools of Point Isabel. He was then removed to the remarkable city of Elwood, where he is still struggling up the torturous path of learning. Tradition has it that during the first few months of his life his mouth was continually open, and emitting what is now recognized to have been a very much distorted resemblance of the present ’06 class yell. But as the story goes, “A bad teginning makes a good ending.’’ So it is in Roy’s case, for now he is among the most studious and quiet members of the class.
|THE BUCKEYE STATE claims the honor of being the birthplace of Lola Henrietta Enders. While quite a small girl Lola came to the good old Hoosier State and took up her residence in Elwood. In all of her studies she is remarkably quick. History class especially reveals her studious nature. Like Moses, of old, she is slow of speech, but she is destined to bec« me a leader.
Jj ATHRYN CAROLINE DYER was born in ™ Hamilton county. Indiana. Her early childhood was the free and happy life of a country maid. Hef educatien began in the little district school near her father’s home. In 1902 she entered the E. H. S. Her sunny countenance is never ri filed by little petty vexations, and her merry blue eyes are ever twinkling with laughter and mischief. Al'hough honesty i- her virtue, her carelessi ess sometimes causes her to have too much “cash on hand” in book-keeping. UIS£ DOW was born in Grand Forks. North Dakota. When eleven years old she took a long journey and landed in Knoxville, III. In a few years she entered St. Mary’s school, and finished the first two years’ course there. She then moved to Munci- , Indiana, and thence to Elwood. Wi ll her usual aptness, she became a popular member of the local High School. She never worries about her lessons, she never worries about the weather, t ut it is whispered that she worries about the hearts she has broken.
JTLOY EVERT ACHENRACH is a talented musician and a star in athletic circles. In spite of this, he is known from one end of High School to the other by his w inning smile. We predict a great future tor Cloy, as he is the possessor of a ponderous bass voice that would attract attention anywhere. There is not a maiden of Cloy s acquaintance, or otherwise, who would not be tickled to death by one killing look from Mr. Ach nbath.
j l ARA BELLE BANNON gladdened this world VL by entering it in our own county, near Elwood, having, as several other members of our class, had a rural birthplace. She is a devotee of art and the other gentler sciences, and expects to turn her longings in that direction to some practical use some day. A quota ion which some of her dearest friends apply to her is: “And the wonder grew, that one small head held all she knew.”
jTARL ALLEN ascribes to Hamilton county the honor of being his birthplace. He is a member of the editing staff of this work, which in itself speaks well tor Carl’s character. Though he seldom speaks unless spoken to, as the oracles of old, his words are listened to with great respect by the members of th? Senior B’s- It is said that still w aters run deep, and It is on this that we base our hopes of Carl’s future greatness.
7£VERT McCABE. born in Antwerp, Ohio, has been a resident of this city for seven years. A Buckeye which fell on good soil, made a wide circle of friends, and especially with the faculty. Evert is a member of the foot-ball team, and skilled in all gymnastic feats. Two of his best characteristics are his graceful manners and witty sa ings. He is attentive at all times, noted for always doing the wrong thing at the right time.
ftftRA CLRREY, the hope and last rallying point vii' of that faint-hearted 4 B Geometry Class, first came to Elwood from Kansas about 1890. She has since been attending school here and is now about to graduate wilh our own naught-six class. Besides her very quiet manner, she is noted for her mathematical turn of mind. Upon this and many other promising viitues the class bases its hope of again hearing of Ora in the broad field of learning.lypLA DIPBOYE is an Elwoodite from babyhood ™ to womanhood. Her entire education to date has been gathered in the grand old Central H. S. building. By her melancholy and dreamy trown eyes you will know her. She prides herself on having never received a rebuke or “calling” for misconduct. Although a girl of few words, words of her speaking are gems of knowledge.
ERTRUDE BALDWIN, born neat Elwood, is
another one of those shining marks to which we point with pride. She is only in our class by virtue of her superior mental attainments, having forged ahead of her ow n class to w in the honor ot graduating with us, and we welcome her as we do all such. We can say of her that she is a friend in need, and there are many others w ho agree w ith us.
j LGA MARGARET REED became prominent in educational circles upon entering the class of ’o6 at the beginning of her Senior year. Olga has lived in Elwood during her entire lifetime, attending no other educational institution but the Elwood Public Schools. On account of this fact, Olga is an exceptionally brilliant girl; little but mighty.and inclined to be rather talkative.
2CDNA LUCILLE KNOTTS, treasurer of the Class, and a member of the Editorial Staff, was born in Madison county, west of Elwood. Lucille is efficient in all her work, an agreeable entertainer at the piano and likewise in the gymnasium. She is said to have confessed, at one time, that Milton’s “nut brown alt” had an appetizing ring. Being an ardent admirer of foot ball, her highest aim in life is to be so attractive as to gloriously entrance some famous foot ball man.
EORGIA IMA BAKER, a School girl, and one of the
typical jolly High members of this dis-
tinguished body of editors, is another popular member of our class. She confesses that her ambition is to be an instructor of the Young America, a position we believe Itna would be thoroughly qualified for.
®jpi NA lONE MILLER, one of the most intelli gent girls in High School, came to Indiana from Ohio when she was quite small. She seems to have been favored by the immortal gods, and permitted to attend school in the High School building during the entire period of her trials and disappointments of school life. Edna is highly esteemed by all her classmates, even though she did forsake them lor a time, and share the ha’dships of the Senior A’s.JlESSlE FLORENCE WELBOURNE, a beauti-Iul little blonde, is a graduate of the Madison County Schools, class of 1900. Her chief virtue is her beauty, and it has been rumored that as a l ady in Black” she is a perfect dream. Jessie is just the right age to be cute and consequently attractive. She is capable of enjoying a host of friends, although she is possessed by a roaming disposition, taking two interurban rides daily.
jrDITH IONE DtHORlTY, like many another bZ luckless urchin, has, until this remote time, spent her days an ong the busy streets and broad avenues of our own city, lone entered the High School in 1002 with that class of which she is still a member. The class, however, true to its character, was unable to appreciate, far less to emulate, the example she soon placed before them. In all her classes, and especially in physics, does she succeed by that same dauntless spirit and Napoleonic virtue —little, but mighty.
rrEVINA BULL, whose name is enrolled in that 8U class of ’06. was born at the little hamlet of Remington, Indiana, and from thence moved to El-wood in i$gt. She came to till her appointed niche in our class which entered in that memorable year of 1902, and has then partaken of her full share of difficulties incident to all those who are included in that mass of students each struggling to maintain his place in our high school-
4|OHN MONTGOMERY GLENN is one of our w three members from the Sunflower state, and, indeed he quite resembled a tall, stately sunflower w hen he had the yellow jaundice- The fact that he has been class president for two years and was also made editor-in-chief of this annual by the class, shows only to a small extent his popularity among its members. John is of quite a scientific turn of mind, and also one of the best and brightest members of the class. We certainty do expect great things from him. but who can tell what the future will bring forth?
mtlNONA MYRA ALICE LAKE, “who says there’s nothing in a name?’’ This is the name of one of the most remarkable girls in our class. Great honor to a girl w ith so much ambition and push, for Winona is making the High School course in three and one-half years instead of four- The class, as a whole, has great hopes and ambitions for Winona, but. like all girls of her type, there is usually a man in the case, so our hopes may be in vain, who knows?
-jrtUBY MORRIS was born in Salem. Indiana. Hi Soon after this happy event she moved to Richmond, where she attended school for one year. She again migrated and went to Rushville. But it is on |y in the last few w eeks that she made her best move, coming to Elwood, and casting her lot with the ’c6 class. Since her entrance here she has proved herself to be a characteristic student for the ’o6 class, and her arrival was heralded with gre; t joy by every member of the class-0THARLES THOMAS CAVAN was born at Clay Centre. Kansas. In early life his roving disposition caused him to wander freely about over our great country until he finally arrived at El wood. Here he is still residing and sharing the trials and tribulations of the c6 class. Charles has many great drawing qualities, the cl iet one being his attraction for the feminine sex. He has always taken a prominent part in athletics, being a member of the foot-ball team and captain of the track team in 1905. He shines most brilliantly in the realm of mathematics and some day we hope to hear of Charles in the cast of a great engineer.
jjESSELL A BEEBE first saw the light of day at Kingman, Kansas, from which place she soon emigrated and came to the busy city of Elwood which she still honors by her presence. She entered the E. H. S. in 1902 with the present Senior B'sand throughout these years of battling for knowledge she has always shown her ability to conquer all obstacles. By the brisk, business-like manners she has gained the highest esteem of both students and faculty.
jJATHRYNE McBRIDE one of the most active memers of the class of 1906, was born in Ncoga, III., but has always attended the Elwood Public Schools. She is especially bright in English, because she always prepares her lessons so long before recitation that she forgets them. Kathryi e is of quite an artistic turn of mind, and very fond of the beautiful. The class future predicts for her the life of an old maid but I am rather inclined to doubt that, for I have heard it said that her heart is not in her work but elsewhere.

2JDNA IRENE HALL was like so many of her other brilliant classmates, born and reared in Elwood. She has attended the Elwood Public Schools since the age of eight years. Now and then she gets a chance to display the excellent training her grade teachers gave her, especially in history, where she always insists that places on the map are where they are not. Edna’s High School life was successful and pleasant until she became a Senior, and since then, she and Mr. Bordner cannot agree about a Senior chewing gum We cannot exactly say just what Edna's highest ambition is. but we do know that she is a pleasure loving girl, for this is her motto: “When duty and pleasure clash, let duty go to smash.”
jrVA PEARL HOCKER, the secretary of the’c6 class, was born in Pennsylvania not so very many years ago, but she moved t Elwood at an early age. On account of the fact that she always attended the Elwood Public Schools, she entered high school a very bright girl, and all through the course, so far, she has kept up this reputation. We will always consider Eva one of our most active and efficient members, even if she has forsaken us for two subjects with the 4 A’s, since we know her present attraction is in that direction. As for her future attractions and ambitions we cannot say we know, for a woman’s heart, like the moon, is always changing, but there is always a man in it.One bright sunny day in June when all earth seemed to be posing in reverence to the Great Sun, 1 was walking down a narrow, winding pathway in the midst of a dense and rugged, but beautiful, woodland, listening as I walked to the warbling of the early birds as they fluttered from tree to tree, extending a hearty welcome to newcomers and renewing old acquaintances.
Following this path, each new scene seemed more beautiful than the last, and I felt assured that Sylvanus must have graced the place by her presence. After walking quite a distance I noticed the sun was slowly sinking, and I knewr it must be growing late. Being extremely fatigued from my journey, I sought a reserved spot where I could rest and refresh myself before starting back home.
This was a beautiful, sequestered place at the foot of a small hill, encircled with trees, and overhung by clusters of wild vines, so as to form a sort of canopy. A tiny rippling stream of water wended its way down the hill-side, and at
the summit formed a clear, cool spring, which served as a companion to me while 1 occupied this cynosure of beauty. Such a serene and comforting spot! Indeed, almost sacred, when I recall the delightful moments which I spent there undisturbed and alone, when the dark veil that conceals the future seemed to be drawn aside and I was borne away, as if on a swift morning cloud, into the heart of a great Eastern city.
I seemed to be a perfect stranger in this locality and trying to learn just where I was I noticed a tall blonde of about thirty summers making her way toward me. She was apparently a typical old maid, carrying an oblong leather case. As I drew near I recognized her as Kathryne McBride, long since graduated from the E. H. S., class ’06. She was homeward bound after ten years’ experience in teaching China painting in Porto Rica. She informed me that several other members of the old class were employed in a school not far from the city; so we boarded a
(£lass ifrnphrrtjcar at once determined to find our old classmates. Soon golf links and tennis courts came into our view, and we knew we were near our destination. Pursuing a path which led to the college, we were met by a crowd of students, recognized four of them as Vina Bull, Edna Miller, Ora Curry and Olga Reed, who were just about to complete their advanced courses of study.
After the natural greetings we were granted the pleasure of meeting other old classmates employed in the various departments. Jessie Wel-boume, instructor of foreign languages; Gertrude Baldwin and Winona Lake still struggling faithfully in the battlefield of mathematics, while Eva Hocker, becoming a very dignified soul, was secretary of the school. Upon inquiring as to the history of the school, we were told that Lucille Knotts had fallen heir to a vast fortune, and had established this school for girls.
Upon returning to the city I went directly to the hotel, and as I registered noticed familiar names registered before mine. Clara Bannon, whom I learned had just returnedNrom a town in Europe, seeing antique culture as it has come down to us, visiting Berlin and Rome. Jesella
Beebe was also spending a few days here after a missionary trip to an island in the Pacific ocean.
While waiting in the hotel office, I overheard a conversation between two men, whom I learned were no other than Carl Allen and Cloy Achen-bach, graduates of ’06. Carl was telling that he had discovered a new method of calculating force, while Cloy in like manner related how faithfully he had searched for years and at last had found the fair damsel who could “prepare country messes with the grace of Phyllis.”
The next day while on a shopping tour in the city, I met two more old friends; Nila Dipboye in the garb of a nurse, and Edna Hall, the wife of a rich merchant and with plenty of money at her disposal, spent most of her time in the slums helping the poverty stricken. This same day I had occasion to visit one of the largest pharmacies in the city, and upon entering was astounded to see in brazen letters across the window “Fesler and Sizelove, Pharmacy.” I was received royally here and discovered that the bookkeeper was also a graduate of ’06, Matilda Roth.
It was growing late and I concluded to goback to the hotel. While waiting for a car, I noticed a tall, handsome man approaching with all the dignity of a prince. Who should it be but our old class president, John Glenn, now a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and an efficient electrical engineer. He boarded the same car as I and we were no more than seated when we heard a familiar giggle and looking around there was Kate Dyer accompanied by her husband, a wealthy dentist of the city.
I felt very much at home in the city by this time, and on this particular evening I was glancing over a city newspaper when I noticed an item stating that Miss lone DeHority, a famous organizer of Women’s Clubs, would speak in the Auditorium the ensuing day, accompanied by Louise Dow, pianist, now quite prominent in the musical world. It was here, also, that I learned of the announcement of the marriage of Ruby Morris, a sweet girl graduate of ’06, to an active worker in educational circles.
The next day while sight-seeing I chanced to witness the erecting of a massive bridge and an immense stone wall. While gazing at the work-
men someone in the crowd touched me on the shoulder, and as I turned I stood face to face with a graduate of ’06, Charles Cavan, now employed here as a civil engineer. He told me that Lola Enders, who had recently changed her name and was now enjoying being mistress of a cottage built for two, was living in the city. Calling upon Lola, I received glad tidings concerning two more members of the Class.
Eve! t McCabe, now a prosperous farmer, owning vast acres of land, and one of the most beau-titul farms in the East. I learned this was a very progressive section of the country, and afforded one of the best schools. I decided to visit this school, being interested in this certain kind of work, and upon rapping at the door of a “Little Red School House, was greeted by the cheerful face of Ina Baker, whom I remembered as a Senior of ’06.
All had been perfectly quiet and as a light breeze stirred the leaves and I gazed about me I was greatly bewildered. What could be more pleasant than such a vision being real after such a lapse of time! Sincerely trusting the future for such a situation, I journeyed homeward, realizing that no other class of the Elwood High School eveipproduced so many zealous and successful men and women as the Class of 1906.

Lucile answering a history question: “Well,
a Boston merchant was engaged in raising Cain (cane) in Jamaica;” but she was stopped by the laughter of her classmates, even Mr. Petty’s lips were parted with the “smile that wont come off.”
Of all the unique methods employed by the girls to inform their gentleman friends on Sunday evenings that the hour is growing late; that used by Gladys Moore is the best. When she thinks that His time is up, she solemnly permits the fire to go out, and proceeds to slowly freeze the poor fellow out.eThe Carter Feed Coal Co.,
